The components of the building are already manufactured in a factory .They are transported to the site of the building and assembled together to produce the house or building .
Prefabricated homes, often referred to as prefab homes or simply prefabs, are specialist dwelling types of prefabricated building which are manufactured off-site in advance, usually in standard sections that can be easily shipped and assembled. Some current prefab home designs include architectural details inspired by post-modernism or futuristic architecture.
Well, prefab houses have been around for many years and were used in many countries damaged during the world war to provide emergency houses after the war.
They are now been used in many countries and in modern architectural design. But Uganda is not yet ready as they need to be built complying with very strong building codes, which we don’t have yet.
